A splendid recently upgraded 18th century stone cottage with lovely garden. Situated in an elevated position in the pretty village of Caldbeck. Sleeping six it is ideal for families or groups of friends wishing to explore the area.
Ellwood House is an 18th century stone built cottage located in an elevated position in the village of Caldbeck in the northern fells of the Lake District with open views. High Pike can be seen immediately due south of the cottage in the picturesque expanse known colloquially as 'Back o' Skiddaw'. Just 100 yards across the field below you will find Gill Beck which runs through the village with a footpath just... behind. The area is great for exploring on foot or bike, and the Cumbria Way and Reivers Route both pass through the village. For those who still have energy left from walking the fells, tennis courts are available for booking just 200 metres away. The local pub serves excellent bar meals and there are many more places to eat in the surrounding villages.
The cottage has benefited from a major upgrade which has included the installation of a cast iron wood burner, which provides a wonderful focal point and is great to cuddle-up in front of after a day on the fells, and fitting of a solid oak floor. Ellwood House is in a quiet, rural location which makes the cottage a perfect place to retreat to at any time of the year for a ‘get away from it all' break.

Loved the cottage. Wish we could pick it up and take it home.
It was spotlessly clean and fresh when we arrived and even though it is a pet-friendly property you'd never know there had been any animals in it. The layout was great, it was well furnished and the kitchen had just about everything we could need.
With a wood burning stove in the living room it would be perfect for romantic getaways.
There were even spare light bulbs and batteries provided should you need them.
The cottage was in what we thought was a quiet little side street but later turned out to be quite a busy one, but it didn't affect us much as we were out most of the day.
While we were staying there was a building site at the rear which we thought would be noisy and disturbing but wasn't, and the workmen were very accommodating when asked to move their vehicles for access.
All in all we had a very enjoyable week and would recommend Ellwood House to anyone who loves the area and would like to bring their pet. Read more

If it's not broke!
Left on 09/17/2013 for a stay in August 2013 | Lownthwaite Luke
We had a lovely stay, the cottage could do with updating in terms of the cutlery and the drawer its kept in (loose handles and hard to open, generally a bit wonky)but new isn't necessarily better! comments of previous guests. Good clean bedding which is always a plus. Maybe the cleaning lady isn't paid enough, as the windows were grimy and I found sweet wrappers behind furniture when I vacuumed the lounge. I don't mind a bit of work even on holiday, its a change from my normal job! I even cleaned the glass in the lounge door. On a serious note, the cottage offered good accommodation and the barn/utility was a god send. Nice garden and dishwasher a godsend. Area was great and the village itself was charming, with some interesting features for us old fogey's 46 and 56. But still with more go than most in their 30's (Tongue in check) Read more

The cottage is beautifully kept and in a perfect spot for walking and cycling. Caldbeck village is delightful with much to see and do if the weather is wet and an excellent real ale pub in the next village of Heskett Newmarket. We look forward to returning and climbing some hills in the near future.
Very enjoyable stay

The cottage was very spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed a weeks stay in late May when the weather was excellent. Tried the local pub a couple of times and the food was very good.

hse bit cold initially but when had had heating on intermittently for few days was comfortable. good facilities. area is great for walking. Close to Carlisle which has nice museum and good shops
Nice cottage but everything smelt of damp on our return
Left on 11/11/2011 for a stay in October 2011 | Sue
Nice facilities and cottage but unfortunately this spoilt by the fact that there was a strong smell of damp that pervaded everything. The smell was very strong throughout the stay and then all clothes etc had to be washed on return, even those which had just been in cupboards, as the smell clung to everything. We all wanted to come home and have a really good shower and get rid of the smell. A real shame as everything else was very good.
